Parkinson's Home Exercise Program
This week's post is a free video home exercise program for improving your voice with Parkinson's. This disease can lead to being quiet and having a scratchy voice that often leads to others asking you to repeat yourself. Simple, daily voice exercises can combat this and make you more intelligible. Eugene Speech-Language Therapy helps you to understand your voice and communication needs, getting you out there again, participating in life.
Here is the list of expressive words and phrases talked about in exercise 5-
1. Thank you!
2. I'm sorry.
3. Why is that?
4. I don't think so.
5. I need help!
6. See you soon!
8. I can't believe it!
9. It's been too long.
10. Have a good day!
